Call to action from CitiesIPCC Conference: Sign Global Pledge on Cities and Climate Change

Future Earth invites all interested organizations to endorse “The Science we Need for the Cities we Want: Working Together to Implement the Global Research Agenda on Cities and Climate Change”, a joint statement which was launched by Future Earth together with C40, ICLEI, UCLG, SDSN, WRCP, UN-Habitat, UN-Environment, Cities Alliance and UCCRN on March 7th during the Cities and Climate Change Science Conference (CitiesIPCC) held in Edmonton, Canada, from March 5-7th 2018.


The statement re-enforces and highlights a commitment to work together – the scientific, policy (local and national level) and practice communities – and bring the relevant expertise and resources to support the implementation of the global research agenda on cities and climate, aiming to support cities to respond and achieve the Paris agreement. It is a commitment to promote and implement outcomes of the CitiesIPCC conference, stimulate the generation of knowledge on cities and climate change, encourage science- and evidence-based climate action in cities, and create and strengthen partnerships in these areas.
